About the department

Vision

The objective of research at the Department of Sociology is to attain the highest international level. As a university department, the Department of Sociology plays a special role in the way the social sciences divide up their work and, consequently, has a duty to continue developing the subject's key theories and methodologies.

The purpose of the Department's research is, therefore, both to contribute theoretically and methodically to international sociology, and to produce theoretically and empirically based analyses for the Danish public that are both socially relevant and topical.
